Loire Valley Wine Tours

Have a taste of some of the best wines of France

The color of the river, the light reflecting the white tufa stone dwellings, and the fresh green of the scenery all contribute to the Loire’s contrasting landscape that reflects the great diversity of its wines: sparkling, red, rosé, dry white or naturally sweet.

The Loire Valley cultivates the ‘art de vivre’ focusing on a worldwide renowned wine-growing terroir which earns the title of the first French winegrowing area for its quality in welcoming visitors. Behind each famous name hides a famous Loire castle: Chenonceaux, Chambord, Brissac, Saumur, Chinon…

From Nantes to Sancerre, passing Anjou, Touraine, Cheverny and Pouilly on the Loire, France’s longest wine route follows the river.

According to experts, top sommeliers and critics in oenology, Loire wines represent the French wines’ new world with steadily growing popularity due to their extreme variety.

A word to the wise!

Their characteristic features make them perfect for contemporary taste:

  • Moderate alcohol, refreshing acidity and mineral taste make them ideal food wines
  • Pure expression of varietal and terroir unmasked by oak
  • Excellent value

With 7000 producers and 85 appellations it can be difficult to choose. This is the reason why Loire Secrets’ partners are winegrowers, oenologists, wine merchants whose know how is invaluable to guarantee our customers a unique wine experience and precious human encounters.
